Earth Day is a great day to get the veg message out! Events will be happening on and around April 22 all over the world as we honor the Earth and learn about ways to reduce our impact on the environment. One of the best ways we can reduce our carbon footprint is by choosing to eat a plant-based diet. The United Nations, the EPA, environmental organizations, and countless scientific studies all worn of the detrimental environmental impact of animal agribusiness. In fact, meat and other animal by-products are responsible for 51% of the total human caused greenhouse gas emissions worldwide according to a study by two prominent World Bank environmental advisers.

Take Action for the Animals and the Earth-
Want an easy way to help animals and the environment? Find out where your local Earth Day event is being held, grab some brochures, and leaflet the crowds at the event. Get some friends together for support or just go solo and help educate your community on eating green. IDA can provide you with leaflets that explain the connection between animal products and global warming, water waste and pollution, deforestation, and more. We also have posters linking climate change with animals raised for food.
